7 Sides of Sly One [Interview & Mix]
Selector After Dark

This week’s interview and mix comes from Sly One.

Introduce yourself and tell us about the part of the UK you’re from?


We are Sly One, a trio of DJs and producers from Bristol making house music that thumps. 


Tell us about some of your British DJ heroes?


Ever since the old dubstep and dnb days we have been big fans of Bristol legends such as Headhunter, Clipz, DJ Die, Interface and Mensah etc, most of them going under new aliases now of course. 


What have you been working on recently?


Lately we’ve been really inspired by tribal and Latin American sounds which has really changed our own tracks this year. 


Tell us about the mix, how did you put it together, what did you want to represent?


The mix is an hour of new music from all around the UK, showing what we have to offer. In this mix we wanted to represent a bit of everything we are playing now from stomping sub heavy tracks to the groovier side of house music. 


Talk us through the British music featured in this mix? Which British artists are you most excited about?


The British music in this mix has a lot of Bristol based artists due to our involvement in the scene but also contains many other producers who are making a big impact in current underground music from London to Glasgow. 


What is on the cards in the immediate future?


Our latest single Drum Party & Air Punching has just come out on Redlight’s imprint, Lobster Boy which has been a label we’ve looked up to for years. We have just started our own label SOBAD Sounds with Bromley, Archive and Distro, which sees our first EP out on the 18th of September. 


Where is the best place in the world you have DJ’d and why?


Oooo that’s a tough one. We love a good festival whether it’s a muddy Glastonbury, Bang Hai at Boomtown or an Outlook boat party. But the best sets we’ve enjoyed have to go to Motion in Bristol, when the main room is full, you have a stage to yourself and the best sound system in the city, the buzz is like nothing else. 


Catch us playing next at Fabric Main room on November the 14th for Lobster Boy
